SPARK Ontario

Community Champions Campaign ... it's time to share the SPARK. >>

SPARK Ontario is a legacy project for the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games and will be Ontario’s first ever bilingual online volunteer gateway. It supports volunteer recruitment province-wide by aggregating volunteer opportunities and other resources into a single, accessible website that encourages Ontarians to volunteer and make their communities better places to live and work. SPARK Ontario will grow volunteering in Ontario by connecting potential volunteers with the non profits who need their help!

SPARK Ontario is:

  • an online platform for people to explore volunteering and find volunteer positions
  • an online library of resources for volunteers, non-profits and corporations
  • an opportunity to showcase volunteering in Ontario

A key aspect of SPARK Ontario is its focus on finding and promoting non-traditional volunteering opportunities AND engaging non-traditional volunteers. SPARK Ontario is forging new pathways in volunteering and inviting more Ontarians to join the circle of community.

If you are a non-profit, make your profile pretty, post your opportunities and share your stories of volunteer impact. If you are a potential volunteer, do some exploring. Have a look at the stories, do a few searches. Find something you think will SPARK you. If it doesn’t, come back and try again!

If you are a current volunteer, tell us your story and tell us what SPARKED you about volunteering.
